Conference Description

This conference deals with both chemistry and physics of polymer colloids. The chemistry involved includes kinetics, mechanism and syntheses of latex particles. Physical properties of latices include colloidal stability, controlled deposition and aggregation of latex particles. Much emphasis has been given to the applications of the latex systems - including coatings, paper coatings and adhesives - but specialty applications like controlled drug release, diagnostics and microelectronics are also addressed. The meetings include a poster session and lively discussions.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series was related to the "Polymer Colloids" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
